Very cool challenge. Think I'd be real happy with this mix of shows--one month/one year:

1-10-79: Nassau Coliseum. Favorite all time (FAT) "Shakedown" and "Miracle" + a "Dark Star" and "St. Stephen" in a '79 show? Sweet.

2-24-74: Winterland. FAT "China>Rider". Great all around Winterland madness.

3-29-90: Nassau Coliseum: Branford. "Eyes", "Birdsong".

4-16-78: Huntington, West VA. Favorite of the amazing April '78 run. Top 3 all time "Scarlet>Fire"

5-1-81: Hampton, VA. My pick for most underrated show. FAT "LIG" and "Althea". Everything played beautifully.

6-14-76: Beacon Theater, NYC. Mellow gold. And what a set list!

7-18-89: Alpine Valley, WI. Best segue ever: "Sugar Mag>Scarlet." Gorgeous show in a "comeback" year.

8-27-72: Oregon Cty. Fairgrounds. If not for that pesky 10/29/77, probably my all time favorite show. Perfect Brothers perfection 5 years before they were the Perfect Bros. FAT "PITB". Top 3 all time "Birdsong" and so much more.

9-11-82: West Palm Beach, Fla. Top 5 all time "Scarelet>Fire." Nice all around representation of a great show from one of their last best years.

10-29-77: Evan's Fieldhouse, DeKalb, Ill. You've all heard enough from me on this one.

11-29-80: Alligator Alley, Fla. "Shakedown>Franklin's!!!!!"

12-6-73: Cleveland Public Hall. Jazz lover's delight. FAT "Here Comes Sunshine". Fantastic "Eyes>Stella Blue." Donna MIA.
